Josh Radnor and Malin Akerman Exclusive Video Interview HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE

Josh Radnor and Malin Akerman Video Interview HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE.jpg

One of the many films that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film festival was writer/director Josh Radnor’s happythankyoumoreplease.  While many might have thought Radnor only got into Sundance due to his CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, his film won the Dramatic Audience Award at Sundance, proving he belonged in the Festival.

Starring Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Kate Mara (Shooter), Tony Hale (Arrested Development , Chuck) and Josh Radnor, happythankyoumoreplease is about six New Yorkers juggling love, and friendship.  Even though the story is nothing new in the world of movies, I really enjoyed his debut film.  Also, while many Sundance movies were tough to watch, happythankyoumoreplease is a really sweet romcom that’s sure to please audiences looking for an uplifting movie about love.  While the movie doesn’t yet have distribution , I’m sure someone will purchase the film soon.

To help promote the film, I got to talk with Malin Akerman and Josh Radnor.  You can watch the interview after the jump:

As usual, I’ve listed what we talked about above the interview.  And if you’d like to see some movie clips from happythankyoumoreplease, click here.
